Exclamation White Smoke While Pulling Out (Detailed)

Hello. Hope I am posting in the correct section. Below is my Specs and Problems. Just bought this truck 5K Miles ago.

05' Ford F-250, Ext Cab, Long Bed
6.0 PowerStroke Diesel with 37K Miles.


The only Upgrade / Mod to this Truck is a 4" Turbo Back, no Cat, no Muffler, MSRB Exhaust.

About 1 Week after it being on, and a fill up of Fuel at local station. The next day I noticed white smoke puffing out pretty good when I would pull out from stop signs / red lights.

Bout 5 Days later I got my Scheduled oil Changed and it came out Black as can be, not Milky what so ever....

I been watching the Coolant level in my reservoir and it hasn't dropped or look polluted with Oil in any way.

I ran the tank low and put a 12 ounce Water removing solution safe for Diesel Fuel and 10 gallons of Fuel in. Still Blowing some White Smoke. Don't know if it is as bad yet.

The Water in Fuel Light has never came on yet so I don't know. Sorry my Post is long and Spaced alot, just dont know what else to do. I hope you guys can Help me out.


Thanks Mike.

does the white smoke smell like raw diesel fuel so bad it burns your eyes when you stand next to it? my buddy has an 05 with 150,000 and his does the same thing i think it is from sticky injectors.hopefully some will chime in here and help out .

Im going to lean more towards bad injector(s) since you said it happend after you got fuel.

Was this local station a "Mom&Pop" type of place or was it a big Company like shell.

Two tips: Always fill up at places that move a lot of fuel and dont let your fuel level get extrememly low.

Do as stated earlier with smelling the exhaust. You can also test to see if the EGR failed by parking on a incline with the rear-end of the truck higher than the engine. Now pull the EGR valve and look inside the intake manifold. If it is wet, the cooler has failed.

Egr Valve



I think its 2 8mm bolts. The valve is kind of a pain to get out but it will come out.

Thanks for the Insider and Help Goose. Last Question if you still there. What should I do before I pull it... Run it around the block or what not first? Get her nice and Warm. Or do it Cold. And I am assuming have her turned off.
